Description Wolfgang Richter 2004-07-16 22:43:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
Whenever I try to start up2date it will fail - even when logged in as
root.  This is the message it gives me (on CLI):

Could not set exec context to root:sysadm_r:rpm_t.

I am not sure if this is related to SELinux or not.  I am sorry I
don't have much more information.  This is a fresh install with no
changes, up2date just isn't working (for me).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a fresh install of Fedora Core Test 3 (x86_64 version from DVD)
2. Login as a regular user.
3. Try to start up2date any way you can, from RHN icon (launch
up2date) or CLI.
4. You will be asked for root password, give it.
5. If CLI you must us su to become root.
6. up2date will fail.


Actual Results:  up2date fails with this message on CLI (otherwise no
indications - nothing happens):

Could not set exec context to root:sysadm_r:rpm_t.

Expected Results:  up2date would have come up and installed the latest
